Isn’t it funny how small things like that can take you back to your childhood when it was much simpler times? The thing is that wasn’t the only fireplace in the house. My father loved them and it grew on me too. We had a brick fireplace in the living room. The wall was brick and the fireplace matched. The other walls were wood and I could sit in that room for hours just looking out the window or reading a book. It was like the fireplace made all the difference in the world. A room without a fireplace was boring. A room with a fireplace came to life and invited you into it. Hot cocoa and picture puzzles are memories associated with the fireplace in the living room. But, we’ve kind of grown up a bit in our design of the fireplace. The other day, I helped a friend decide on a pyramid shaped fireplace. It sits on a base that is about a foot high and three feet wide by three feet long. The pyramid has four sides so it will sit square on the base. That’s a nice design.
In the era in which unparalleled and inimitable houses are no more a dream, one needs put in sincere efforts to create a paradise out of their home, which becomes the envy of each of its visitors. A chic or classy fireplace can indeed give your cozy corner a special feel. Though for some people, building a fireplace might be a new idea, however it is worth giving a try. Today the market is flourishing with numerous styles and patterns of fireplaces and its tools and accessories. Truly speaking, outdoor fireplace is a great idea to create a lasting impression on your visitors and if it is accompanied with few classy accessories then it’s just like topping an ice-cream with a cherry. Outdoor fireplace accessories include stylish fireplace screens which are available in various patterns and styles. A log holder is yet another important accessory which should not be missed out when designing an outdoor fireplace. Elegant wood holders and ash buckets are also available in the market at affordable prices. Moreover if your fireplace is accompanied with a fire starter and a log splitter then no one can stop envying the aura you have created with an outdoor fireplace.
Ventless gas logs are designed to be used indoors and have several safety features that make them safe inside your home. Manufacturers of ventless gas logs have a limit to the amount of BTU’s burned which limits the size of most unvented gas log burners to 30". The size of a firebox that would comfortably hold a 30" gas burner is 42" to 48" which is still a large fireplace. A standing pilot assembly stays lit and heat is tracked with a thermocouple. If the flames go out for any reason, the thermocouple cools and gas stops at the valve. Oxygen depletion sensors are also attached to the gas valve to ensure the flames do not burn up so much oxygen in the house that unsafe conditions are created.
People actually consider buying a screen a good investment because it must be one of the essential parts of the house. Some screen designs include brass, gold and floral designs, classic and modern designs as well as copper finish and scroll designs. It is recommended to see the different kinds of designs available in the market before choosing what you want because you may need to ensure that the design you choose suits your personal preference and perfect for your home. One of the benefits of a fireplace screen is it hides the woods and the ashes inside the fireplace. You do not have to worry about the measurement of your fireplace because screen for the fireplace is available in different shapes and sizes.
